More about the content


Mother's Day was created as a tribute to the life of Ann Jarvis. Ann Jarvis was known for doing social work with other mothers, especially during the American Civil War. Her death on May 9, 1905 took a heavy toll on her daughter, Anna Jarvis. Years later, she decided to create a commemorative date to honor her mother. Anna Jarvis's work led to a memorial in honor of her being held in May 1908 - this was the first Mother's Day.

Anna Jarvis committed to making Mother's Day a permanent commemorative date in the United States. In this regard, she enlisted the support of a merchant named John Wanamaker.

Later that year, Elmer Burkett, a senator from Nebraska, took the proposal to the US Senate, but it was not approved. Even so, the celebration in honor of mothers spread across the United States. From 1909, Anna Jarvis devoted herself entirely to her mission to make Mother's Day official.

In 1910, the state her mother was active in, West Virginia, made Mother's Day official. Two years later, in 1914, the US Congress established the second Sunday in May as the date for the celebration, and the measure was ratified by the then president of the country, Woodrow Wilson. The date was created exactly as a way to honor all mothers.
